Belligerent and violent. Not for intelligent people
5 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Steve Wilkos is nothing more than a grown-up version of what he was in high school. A bully who gets into fights and yells at people, thinking he'll 'scare them straight'. He flaunts his ex-Marine and former cop status to his guests as if it redeems the fact that he has an anger problem and violent tendencies. It's narcissistic. Also, at the end of the show, when he reads the viewer e-mails, he ALWAYS replies to those who are against his tactics with the ever-redundant 'belly rub analogy', it usually sounds something like "If YOU have a show, you can have these pedophiles and abusers on your stage, give them tea and a belly rub...." Never fails. Steve, just because we're against you DOES NOT mean we are FOR the other side! Also, every time I hear Steve's volume go up, the tonal inflections of his voice sound *exactly the same*. Maybe it's because I'm a musician, I notice these things. Steve also admitted that to most of these horrible people he has on the show, he'd seriously like to inflict them harm. Here's a gem of wisdom for the two-dimensional: Violence breeds violence. Just stop. Both Steve and whatever abuser he's tearing into lack foresight, and I pity that people lack that, but please, there are shades of grey in the way things are handled, not black and white, as Steve sees it. To Steve, freedom isn't free and peace isn't peaceful. I oftentimes compare this show to the A&E show "Intervention". Intervention has professionals working with the families in a civil manner to the drug user/abuser/addict, etc., not screaming at them like a crazed ape. I hope that after the second season, the Steve Wilkos Show gets wiped off the air and he can then take his hero complex elsewhere.

Also, To those people who blame the likes of me for 'being liberal' and "hating the death penalty", answer this: How does killing the killer make everything right again? Does it bring back the innocent? Or does it just continue the cycle of violence? Enough is enough. Steve is one for egging one on, trying to make them act out in violence, publicly humiliating them. That is not making things right. That is not 'tough love', that's exacerbating the existing problem, only in front of a camera. Steve isn't a therapist, he's not a hero, he's a human animal with a lack of foresight.
